    Can I edit my source code within Jotform, prior to publishing on my site?

    Asked by ThinkThroughMath on February 29, 2016 at 04:41 PM

    Hi - We use Pardot to track our leads and would like to incorporate it into our Jotform, but it doesn't seem possible to edit the source code within Jotform prior to publishing.

    Original code: <form class="jotform-form" action="https://submit.jotform.us/submit/60595302778160/" method="post" name="form_60595302778160" id="60595302778160" accept-charset="utf-8">

    From this code, we just need to change the URL to a Pardot Form Handler tracking code, but I'm unable to insert the full code into our website. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I have the same question. BDAVID, I think that OP knows who to download the source code, but they are wondering whether it is possible to update the source code stored by JotForm.

    This allows us to tweak the form without having to download an independent copy.

    Thanks. I downloaded the HTML, JS, and CSS files. So, I would have to edit the HTML with the new form action URL and then upload all files to my WordPress site in order for it to work?

    I believe you can not upload the HTML, JS, and CSS files into Wordpress. A solution would be to upload your files into your own FTP server, and get the link to the html file, and generate an Iframe code to embed it your Wordpress site: http://7thspace.com/webmaster_tools/iframe_generator.html
